Pioneering Real Estate Lending Platform LandOrc Gets Its Pioneer Investors

LandOrc | August 30, 2021

Bridging the USD 500 billion Real Estate Funding Gap via USD 19 billion and growing Decentralised Finance pool.

LandOrc is pioneering a new way of collateral based lending for the real estate industry. Specially focusing on high base lending rate markets with annual property development spends in the region of USD 500 billion. Property developers in the markets are seeking lower cost of capital to improve their profitability.

On the other end, growth of the decentralised finance products have been based primarily on virtual assets. Availability of real world assets like land, provided as a collateral against lending, provides a greater level of reassurance to the crypto investors operating on decentralised finance. This land collateral is in the form of NFT (Non Fungible Token) with oracles bringing in other physical world data points associated to the land title on-chain.

Thus bringing greater transparency and pace for transactions via blockchain. An analysis of Ethereum wallets show that 99% of wallets are still not involved in speculative financing activity and hence would see value in land collateral based lending.

A number of property developers from high interest markets in Asia and Africa have already lined up their projects for lending along with a collateral thus ensuring there is a flow of potential projects. LandOrc opened up their platform to early stage investors on the 15th of August for them to understand the business, working of DApps (decentralised applications) and buying LandOrc (LORC) tokens.

LORC tokens are the sole means available for staking or lending on the LandOrc platform. They are available for purchase on the platform itself and decentralised exchanges like Uniswap. Thus offering investors multiple opportunities to participate in the LandOrc platform.

With all its smart contracts listed on Etherscan and security checked by Entersoft, an Australia based IT and Blockchain security expert. The entire DApps from NFT creation to token staking is available for viewing for the community to better understand the process.

The launch has been very well received by the investors, these pioneers have already bought the entire seed round. Like the early days of Bitcoin these pioneer investors have received the first block of LORC tokens The pioneer investors are looking forward to the future growth of the LandOrc and are enjoying some of the bonus benefits available for pioneers.

JLL Income Property Trust Acquires Grocery-Anchored Retail Center in Las Vegas

JLL Income Property Trust, Inc. and LaSalle Investment Management | August 10, 2022

JLL Income Property Trust, an institutionally managed daily NAV REIT with approximately $6.8 billion in portfolio assets announced today the acquisition of Silverado Square, a 48,000-square-foot retail center in Las Vegas, Nevada. The retail property is anchored by Sprouts Farmers Market, shadow anchored by CVS, and includes a parcel that is fully entitled for nearly 5,000 square feet of rentable retail space. Silverado Square was acquired for $24.4 million. "Silverado Square is a well-located property that fits within our thesis of acquiring high-quality, grocery-anchored retail centers, Its location next to two major thoroughfares and near a large master-planned community, along with its strong tenant roster and long-term lease commitments, should bode well for the center's continued success in generating stable income. As we saw throughout the pandemic, grocery-anchored retail is resilient, and can continue to provide returns for our stockholders throughout volatile market conditions." -JLL Income Property Trust President and CEO Allan Swaringen Constructed in 2018, Silverado Square benefits from a highly visible location on two thoroughfares in the Silverado Ranch master-planned community, which is home to more than 55,000 people. The property ranks in the top quartile of LaSalle Research & Strategy's proprietary Supermarket Trading Area Rating System (STARS), which ranks more than 40,000 grocery-anchored retail centers in the US. The high score owes to Silverado Square's proximity to population density and median income that are both above the national average. The property has a weighted average lease term of more than eight years, including a 15-year lease signed by Sprouts in 2018 that features 10 percent rent escalations every five years. Overall, the property is 98 percent leased. The fully entitled parcel, directly to the east of the existing structures, provides JLL Income Property Trust with the opportunity to build nearly 5,000 square feet of additional retail space and drive further net operating income. The new building will be leased by three tenants and is scheduled for completion later this year. JLL Income Property Trust's grocery-anchored retail allocation is 23 properties in 13 key markets valued at nearly $850 million and representing approximately 13 percent of its overall portfolio. JLL Income Property Trust is an institutionally managed, daily NAV REIT that brings to investors a growing portfolio of commercial real estate investments selected by an institutional investment management team and sponsored by one of the world's leading real estate services firms.
